Agritech Activator

Global Signals


Explore new perspectives and identify emerging trends before they arise to ensure your business is future ready.


Research shows that future ready businesses outperform other businesses in growth and longevity. But how do you know what the next big innovation will be? Where do you look and how will you ride that wave, innovating when others appear to be standing still?

Global Signals has been created to help New Zealand agritech businesses monitor and interpret key global shifts before they happen. It enables businesses to pinpoint areas of the market that have the potential to be disrupted, and enables those businesses to act accordingly.
